Advancing Markets. Enriching Lives.
To become the industry leading market-making firm by creating an environment where innovative and collaborative professionals thrive.
I have been working at Allston Trading full-time (More than a year)
Great company with very little politics. Great working environment with friendly people. Lots of perks such as weekly massage, breakfast and lunch, game room including Ping Pong table and Pool table and air hockey etc. Flexible working schedule with no time off limit as long as the job is done! Compensation is good and bonus is handed out quarterly, which very prop trading firms would do. Management is very goal-driven and knows what's important and what's not.
Technology wise, might need a little bit more structure, standardization and processes in place to make things better, which has already been happening.
Advice to Management
Keep up the great job, and we enjoy working here!
I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Allston Trading.
Several one on one interviews with various members of the IT team and HR. Some interviewers were too technical, looking for book definitions as opposed to real world thinking and experience, but overall the process seemed to be moving quickly with timely feedback. That is until they decided to not respond to any requests from the recruiter for feedback to determine if I was still being considered for the position. I was ok with a yes or no, but it was very unprofessional to not respond at all to multiple requests.
